Saranya Mohan, who was a child artiste discovered by director Fazil in Malayalam cinema, could make a huge impact on the screen as Nayantara's sister with a crush on the hero in the recent Dhanush-starrer Yaaradi Nee Mohini. This pretty girl from Kerala, who started out with Oru Naal Oru Kanavu three years ago, seems to have hit the jackpot after all. Today, she has graduated from playing sister to heroine in many Tamil movies like Vennila Kabaddi Kuzhu, Panchamritam and Eerum.
After Oru Naal Oru Kanavu, Saranya took a huge break in her acting career since she was very serious about her studies. "I was studying at the time I was a child artiste. Now I am doing my final year in Literature so can afford to restart my career," she said.
Vennila Kabaddi Kuzhu, directed by Susindran, is about a kabaddi team and Saranya is the heroine in this sports film. "My character is very important in the story. I play a village girl with more expressions than dialogues. Vennila Kabaddi Kuzhu has an excellent team and a strong script. I want to play good characters. Acting is more important than glamour," she said.
In the Aravind-starrer Panchamritam, she is doing a totally opposite role, that of a cheerful, modern and bold girl. In fact, Saranya is keen on doing a variety of roles. She is also awaiting the release of Matrum Palar and Jayam Kondaan and the start of another Kool Productions film. Let's wait and see how audiences accept one more pretty face from Kerala on the big screen.
